I am delighted to be working with you this semester.  My name is Diane Strazzer.   I am a graduate of Western Carolina University where I received my master’s degree in teaching art.  I have taught art since 2010.  I have lived in this community since 2001.  I am a professional artist in my free time.  I spent a year doing service work around the world including in India and Ghana.  I love the outdoors especially mountain biking.

            The art room is a challenging and wonderful space.  I ask students to express themselves, to learn something new, and to develop creativity.  This can be a vulnerable thing.  I am so proud of how students grow in this room and I know you will be too.  Sometimes this is the room where students may feel the proudest of themselves.   I want all students to feel empowered in their life and by their artwork!         

Please consider donating to the art room.  We are always in need of:

            Cash donations, sponges, spoons, graham crackers, white frosting, glue, gallon Ziplocs, white copy paper, sharpies, markers, crayons, colored pencils, masking tape, and duct tape and YOUR TRASH: clean Styrofoam trays.

            Feel free to contact me with any comments or concerns.  The best way to reach me is by email at  I am eager to get to know you and your art!
